i'll hold your hand if you hold mine

You’re the one I want to go on late night drives with while holding hands and singing along to the radio, to drive to the middle of no where and look up at the stars while in each other’s arms, the one to kiss at red lights, the one to hold tightly in my arms, the one to go to coffeehouses with while having tired eyes, the one to be mine while I am yours.

I want it.

I want mornings with my phone full of your text messages saying, “Hi. Good morning. :)” with your cheesy smileys and heart emojis. I want the two of us bickering on the street, rolling our eyes at each other and hiding our smiles, with our fingers laced together between us. I want to sit next to you, sharing earphones and listening to your playlist on repeat, the two of us singing along with our off-key voices breaking with laughter. I want coffee dates and staying in at home. I want adventures and new places and new things, as long as you’re there with me.

I want rainy days with you sleeping next to me as I read my books. I want cold nights and warm blankets around us, your body fitting nicely against mine. I want sad days that gradually become better as you hold me and just let me breathe. I want days when you don’t feel as happy as you usually are and I can hold you in return. I want your brown eyes and your low laughs, your calloused hands and your strong shoulders. I want your silly jokes and dry sarcasm and the sincerity I fell in love with. I want all of it.

I want us.

—  what do you want?
More than anything, more than fireworks and late nights and starry eyes and kisses, I want the warmth of your soul. I want lazy Sundays in bed with you, clean sheets and coffee and that particular smell of golden light streaming through an open window. I want lightning and thunder outside, and you, holding me closely with your skin on mine and your indigo and bronze flecked eyes in front of mine. I want springtime and blossoms and you holding my hand, your golden skin mixed with the cream of mine. I want the kindness and love that flows out of you when you move and laugh and smile. My darling; I want you.

No matter how many times I say “I love you”, it’ll never be enough. I cannot express how you make me feel. I cannot express how crazy I am for you. I cannot express how valuable I feel when I am with you. I cannot express how badly I want to spend the rest of my days with you. It happened all too soon, but this did feel so right, I could hold you forever and kiss you along the happy and dark times. I want to hold your hand and be proud to call you mine. You are my goals. You are my little secrets. You are my smile. You are the first thing I want to see and your name sleeps on my lips. You are mine, through all time, space and universe. You changed my life, all I know now is “I love my life.”

I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move. The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon. Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow. I've got some friends, some that I hardly know. But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world. We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go. We live on front porches and swing life away, We get by just fine here on minimum wage. If love is a labor I'll slave till the end, I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand....until you hold my hand. I'll show you mine if you show me yours first. Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse. Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words.

I don't want non-exclusive.
I don’t want ‘no strings attached.’
I know that I don’t get to decide what you want, but god, I know what I want.
I want to hold your hand like that again.
I want to be able to look at you like that again.
I want to be able to hold you,
and to call you mine.
I want to sit with you,
and laugh with you,
and dream with you.
I know you said you needed more time,
and I respect that,
but god,
I want you.
I want us.

I think that I was meant to hold your hand.“ The boy looked at the girl walking next to him.

“And why is that?” She laughed, a blush creeping into her cheeks as she swung their intertwined hands back and forth.

“We have matching freckles when I hold your right hand in my left,” He held their arms up and lightly traced her freckles. “Time goes by too quickly when we hold hands, I feel completely calm when you’re next to me and I can spend hours with you just holding your hand and I never get bored.” He smiled at her.

She smiled, lifted his hand and lightly pressed her lips to it, “Maybe you really were meant to hold my hand.”

—  falling for him
why were you holding onto my hand so tight?” I asked, reflecting back on last week. “I-” he takes a deep breath and continues “I needed something stable to hold onto, and your hand was the only thing out there for the taking.” I nodded my head in understanding “what was so unstable then?” I ask. “everything but you. he replies, his voice wavering. "but me?” he nods while biting his lip, the way he always does when he’s holding back something he wants to say. “yeah. I like holding your hand. makes me feel like I’m not so out of control anymore.” I nod my head, “alright.” I say, taking his hand in mine. “you’re stable now.
—  excerpt from a book I’ll never write // ig writingmyself
  • If ever something bad happens, I will not let you hold my hand. Instead, I'll hold yours. Because if you are the one who is going to hold mine, chances are you are going to let go. But if I am going to be the one who will hold your hand, forever I will not let go.
